BARYTA CARBONICA Medicine



The Baryta carb. p[patient has habitual sweat of the feet (185), “worse while at rest in the morning, and relieved by exercise out of doors” (Dearborn). The feet are apt to be cold (71), damp and troubled with corns (37) and callosities, and the patient is subject to quinsy.

The adult, needing this remedy, is usually constipated, with small, hard, insufficient stools (88) and burning haemorrhoids (86).

It is to be thought of for chronic aphonia in scrofulous subjects and for broncho-pneumonia (147) of old people. I use Baryta carb.30th.
